PIANOS 



Are the ONLY Pianos manufactured on the improved and 
now celebrated Screw-Stringer system, invented and 
patented by the Mason & Hamlin Co. in 1883. This in- 
vention is the greatest improvement in Pianos in twenty- 
five years, and owing to it the Piano is but slightly 
affected by trying atmospheric conditions, and does not 
require one -quarter as much tuning as Pianos 
generally. 

In all respects these Pianos illustrate the same 

HIGHEST STA NDAR D OF EX C ELLENCE 

which has always characterized the Mason & Hamlin 
Organs, and won for them HIGHEST AWARDS at all 
Great World's Fairs since that of Paris, 1867. 

No one contemplating the purchase of a Piano should 
fail to examine these instruments.

ARE THE HIGHEST 

OF ALL 

HIGH GRADES. 

Warranted Superior to any Bicycle 
built in the "World, regard- 
less of Price, 

Read the following opinion of one of 
the most prominent American dealers 
who has sold hundreds of these wheels : 

Richmond, Va., Oct. 2, 1894. 
Indiana Bicycle Co., Indianapolis, Ind: 

Gentlemen: The Waverley Scorcher 
and Belle came to hand yesterday. We 
are afraid you have sent us the high- 
priced wheel by mistake. You can't 
mean to tell us that this wheel retails 
for $85 ? We must say that it is, with- 
out exception, the prettiest wheel we 
have ever seen, and, moreover, we have 
faith in it, although it weighs only 22 
lbs., for of all Waverleys we have sold 
this year and last (and you know that is 
a right good number) , we have never had 
a single frame nor fork broken, either 
from accident or defect, and that is more 
than we can say of any other wheel, how- 
ever high grade, so called, that we sell. 
We congratulate ourselves every day 
that we are the Waverley agents. 
Yours truly, 

Walter C. Mercer & CO. 

Are you looking for the best 
Bicycle that money will buy, or do 
you want to spend the most money 
you can, with the expectation that 
price makes the wheel ? If the 
former, buy a Waverley.

PREFACE. 



The publishers of this hook are fully aware that it was long since written 
"Of the making of many books, there is no end ; " yet we do not believe that the 
Scripture worthy desired to imply that of the making of useful books there 
should be an end. This volume is prepared in answer to the repeated query, 
"Who is the Town Clerk in the Town of . ..." or a desire to know the names 
of the Chairmen of the various Boards of Selectmen throughout the Common- 
wealth or some other item of town and city knowledge. Hitherto no such in- 
formation could be obtained in any single volume. The heads of librarians and 
others were racked to answer, yet in many cases, the only way was to write to 
the Postmaster or to address the official, as such, letting his cognomen remain in 
the No Name series. To compile this volume the reports of the State, cities and 
towns have been consulted, aggregating many hundred pamphlets and books, not 
to mention the thousands of letters and postal cards that have been sent in the 
pursuit of information. No matter how apparently insignificant the fact desired, 
it has been run down that we might have it right here, until within the covers 
of one volume we have gathered more information concerning the Massachusetts 
of to-day than was ever thus collected and collated before. The matter, thus 
brought together, goes sufficiently beyond any book of similar character to make 
for itself a special place. We have not sought to prepare a volume descriptive 
of the State of yesterday, but emphatically of this year of Grace, 1895. Though 
in each succeeding volume we shall aim to have one introductory bit of lore not 
to be found elsewhere, such as the History of the Electoral College of this Com- 
monwealth, found in this number, and which is owed to the kindness of State 
Librarian, C. B. Tillinghast. 

There must be No. 1 of all things, good or bad. We hope this may prove the 
first of a long series of books which, as the years go by, will tell the story of 
Massachusetts to all who care to know. Naturally, as a beginning, it is exper- 
imental. The question constantly has been, not what shall we put in, but what 
can we leave out. Again, in reducing the compass of State reports, we have 
sought brevity, possibly at the expense of desired detail. To what extent we 
have erred in this respect we shall never know unless patrons inform us. The 
state publishes thousands of pages which may or may not be read by any besides 
the experts or those particularly interested in the matter under consideration. 
For the sake of the general reader we have boiled whole volumes down to the 
least possible space, knowing that those who desire greater detail can get the 



4 MASSACHUSETTS YEAR BOOK. 

reports themselves at the State House. The data that we have collated concern- 
ing the banks of the Commonwealth were never thus gotten together before. 
Not even the directories of cities have given what we here present. The annual 
town reports are not so full of detail concerning the very towns themselves as is 
this volume now in your hands. What possible fact about any city or town in 
Massachusetts is not found here ? Please ask yourself this question and seek 
an answer here. 

Nothing is perfect. You will find errors, but as you read and find matters 
not to your liking, please make a note and inform the publishers. Again, if we 
have left out what you think ought to be here let us know that also. If we 
have printed what you think could with profit be omitted, be kind enough to 
acquaint us. 

In conclusion, this book could never have been prepared without the kindest 
consideration of hundreds of people who have been consulted many times and oft. 
The almost uniform courtesy with which our inquiries have been treated is a 
glorious tribute to the brotherhood of man. Our thanks, hereby extended, are 
due to hundreds of Town and City Clerks, to many Postmasters who, whether 
Republican or Democrat, seem to be veritable Jobs in patience, to the scores of 
Bank officials who have cheerfully responded with data, and in fine, to every 
one who has written a letter or stated upon a postal what we desired to know. 
By name we would like to thank Secretary of State Wm. F. Olin, Sergeant- 
at-Arms J. G. B. Adams, Clerks E. A. McLaughlin and H. T. Coolidge of the 
House and Senate, respectively, and their exceedingly obliging assistants for 
courtesies and facilites, also to State Librarian Tillinghast for the use of the 
store of information at his command, and for valuable suggestions. Nor should 
we forget the heads of other departments, at the State House, and their affable 
clerks, for information given. 

This volume goes forth to the more than two million dwellers in this Com- 
monwealth with the hope that it may serve as a labor saver in the work that 
they have to do and in doing which there has come to this state her reputation 
for thrift and Yankee ingenuity. If it answers this purpose, to a large extent, 
the design of the publishers will have been carried out. 



THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE. 



A COMPLETE LIST AND RECORD OF THE PRESIDENTIAL. ELECTORS 
OF MASSACHUSETTS AND THEIR ACTION. 



Prepared by C. B. tillinghast, State Librarian. 



In view of the fact that no record has been preserved at the State House of the 
meetings of the Electoral Colleges of Massachusetts for the first ten elections of 
President, the following complete list of the Electors and statement of the 
various methods by which they were chosen, and their organization and action, 
may prove of interest, and possess a positive value as a contribution to the 
political history of the Commonwealth. There have been twenty- seven elections 
of President, and it will be seen that at fifteen of them the vote of Massachusetts 
is recorded in favor of the successful candidate. At the remaining twelve elec- 
tions it was recorded as follows: 1800, John Adams; 1808, Charles Cotesworth 
Pinckney; 1812, De Witt Clinton; 1816, Rufus King; 1828, John Quincy Adams; 
1832, Henry Clay ; 1836, Daniel Webster; 1840, Henry Clay; 1852, Winfield Scott; 
1856, John C. Fremont; 1884, James G. Blaine; 1892, Benjamin Harrison. 

The Federal Constitution provided that the " ratification of the conventions of 
nine States shall be sufficient for the establishment of this Constitution between 
the States so ratifying the same." Massachusetts was the sixth in order, the 
date of its ratification being Feb. 6, 1788, and New Hampshire was the ninth, the 
date being June 21, 1788. It may be said in passing, that Rhode Island and North 
Carolina not having, at the date of the first election for President, ratified the 
Constitution, did not vote, and New York lost its vote because the Legislature 
could not agree upon any plan for the choice of Electors. 

The Congress of the Confederation passed a resolution Sept. 13, 1788, directing 
that the choice of Electors of President and Vice-President should take place on 
the first Wednesday of January, 1789, and under this resolution the election of 
the first President took place. Under the Constitution the method of choosing 
the Electors was left to the determination of the Legislatures of the several 
States, and it will be seen that in Massachusetts, as in several of the other 
States, it was several years before there was any settled method. 

1789.— The first Electors from Massachusetts were chosen under a legislative 
resolve of Nov. 19, 1788, " For organizing the Federal Government." This divided 
the State into eight districts for the choice of Representatives in Congress and 
Presidential Electors. Two candidates were chosen by the people in each dis- 
trict, and from these the General Court by joint ballot in convention selected 
one. Two additional Electors were chosen by the Legislature from the people at 
large. The candidates were chosen by the people Dec. 18, 1788, and the choice 
was made by the Legislature Jan. 7, 1789. 

The Electors, with their residence and the counties composing their several 
districts, were as follows : 

William Cushing of Scituate, at large. 

William Shepard of Westfield, at large.

Moses Gill of Princeton, Worcester. 

Walter Spooner of New Bedford, Bristol, Dukes and Nantucket.

The Electoral College met at the Old State House, Feb. 4, 1789, and William 
Sever was chosen to preside. Its vote was cast unanimously for George Wash- 
ington of Virginia and John Adams of Massachusetts. The Electors did not 
designate the persons voted for as President and Vice-President until after the 
adoption of the Twelfth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States 
in 1804. 

1702.— The Electors for the second Presidential election were chosen under 
a Legislative resolve of June 30, 1792, which divided the State into four districts, 
the first comprising Suffolk, Essex and Middlesex counties, to be entitled to five 
Electors; the second comprising Hampshire, Berkshire and Worcester counties, 
and entitled to five Electors; the third to include Plymouth, Bristol, Barnstable, 
Dukes and Nantucket, and to have three Electors, and the Fourth District to be 
composed of the Maine counties and to be entitled to three Electors. It will be 
noticed that no Electors were chosen at large by this plan. The Electors were 
chosen by the people at an election held Nov. 2, 1792, and in cases where there was 
no choice by the people the vacancies were filled by joint ballot of the Legisla- 
ture, Nov. 14, 1792. A session of the General Court to fill these vacancies was 
held at Concord, for the reason that the small-pox was at that time prevalent in 
Boston. 

Bradford, in his History of Massachusetts, volume 3, page 36, states that it was 
generally admitted at this time that while the Legislature was given the consti- 
tutional right to prescribe the mode in which the Electors should be chosen, the 
choice was to be made by the people themselves. It was deemed advisable to 
divide the State into districts for the purpose in order that the people might be 
better acquainted with the persons for whom they were to vote. For several 
succeeding elections, as will be seen, the method of choosing the Electors varied. 
Sometimes they were chosen by districts, sometimes by a general ticket, some- 
times the Legislature decided to make the choice itself. The political com- 
plexion of the times had its influence in determining the methods followed. 

At the session of Congress preceding this election a general law was passed 
governing the method of procedure of the Electoral Colleges, one provision of 
which was that the Executive authority of each State shall certify to three lists 
of the Electors. Governor Hancock was very jealous of any infringement by the 
General Government upon his prerogative as Governor, and he sent a message 
to the Legislature to the effect that while he was willing to perform the duty, he 
considered the mandatory requirement an improper one for the General Gov- 
ernment to make upon the Supreme Executive of an independent State. The 
following is the list of the Electoral College as finally constituted, those marked 
by stars having been chosen by the Legislature in cases where the people failed 
to elect: 

Azor Orne of Marblehead, First District. 

Francis Dana of Cambridge, First District. 

Increase Sumner of Roxbury. First District.

The Electoral College met at the Old State House, Wednesday, December 5, 
1792. William Sever presided, and the Electors cast their ballots unanimously 
for George Washington of Virginia and John Adams of Massachusetts. Major 
John Tyler was appointed messenger to carry the votes to Philadelphia, then 
the seat of the National Government. 

1796.— By an act of June 26, 1794, the State was divided into fourteen districts 
for the election of Representatives to Congress, and by a resolve of June 13, 1796, 
the people were to choose one Presidential Elector from each district and the 
Legislature was to choose two at large, as well as to fill all deficiencies caused 
by the failure of the people to elect. The November session of the Legislature 
in this year, by a resolve dated Nov. 23, 1796, gave the Electors power to fill any 
vacancies in their body. The measure was signed by Samuel Adams, then Gov- 
ernor, but he subsequently sent two messages to the Legislature requesting the 
privilege of annulling his approval and erasing his signature, on the ground that, 
in his opinion, it would establish a dangerous precedent, and that it was the 
spirit and intent of the Constitution that the vacancies should be filled by the 
Legislature. The Legislature, however, refused to allow him to withdraw his 
signature, and the proviso that was obnoxious to Governor Adams survives in 
the Public Statutes to this day. 

The Electors chosen were as follows: 

*Edward Hutchinson Robbins of Milton, at large. 

*Increase Sumner of Roxbury, at large. 

*David Rosseter of Richmond, First Western District. 

*Ebenezer Hunt of Northampton, Second Western District. 

Ebenezer Mattoon of Amherst, Third Western District. 

Joseph Allen of Worcester, Fourth Western District. 

Ebenezer Bacon of Attleboro, First Southern District. 

*William Sever of Kingston, Second Southern District. 

*Elisha May of Attleboro, Third Southern District. 

Thomas Dawes of Boston, First Middle District. 

*Elbridge Gerry of Marblehead, Second Middle District. 

*Samuel Holten of Danvers, Third Middle District. 

Samuel Phillips of Andover, Fourth Middle District. 

*Thomas Rice of Wiscasset, Me., First Eastern District. 

Stephen Longfellow of Gorham, Me., Second Eastern District. 

Nathaniel Wells of Wells, Me., Third Eastern District. 

Those chosen by the Legislature are indicated by stars. 

The Electoral College met at the Old State House, Wednesday, Dec. 7, 1796, 
and the ballot for President resulted as follows : John Adams of Massachusetts 
sixteen, Thomas Pinckney of South Carolina thirteen, Samuel Johnson of North

Carolina two, and Oliver Ellsworth of Connecticut one. Hon. Alexander Camp- 
bell of Steuben, Me., was chosen Messenger to carry the vote to Philadelphia. 

jNOO.— The Electors in 1800 were chosen by the Legislature under a resolve of 
June 6, 1800. which provided that there should be one for each Congressional 
District and two at large. The Electors were empowered to fill vacancies in their 
own number by a resolve of Nov. 15, 1800. The following Electors were chosen 
Nov. 13, 1800: 

Samuel Phillips of Andover, at large. 

Edward Hutchinson Robbins of Milton, at large. 

David Rosseter of Richmond, First Western District. 

Ebenezer Hunt of Northampton, Second Western District. 

John Hooker of Springfield, Third Western District. 

Joseph Allen of Worcester, Fourth Western District. 

Walter Spooner of New Bedford, First Southern District. 

William Sever of Kingston, Second Southern District. 

William Baylies of Dighton, Third Southern District. 

Thomas Dawes of Boston, First Middle District. 

Francis Dana of Cambridge, Second Middle District. 

Samuel Sewall of Marblehead, Third Middle District. 

Theophilus Bradbury of Newburyport, Fourth Middle District. 

Samuel Sumner Wilde of Warren, Me., First Eastern District. 

Lemuel Weeks of Falmouth, Me., Second Eastern District. 

Andrew Pepperell Fernald of Kittery, Me., Third Eastern District. 

This method of the choice of the Electors by the Legislature proved an un- 
popular one, and there were loud complaints against it. It was adopted to 
secure the undivided vote of the State for Mr. Adams, as a majority of the 
Legislature was known to be in his favor. If the people had voted by districts 
several of the Electoral votes would probably have been given to Mr. Jefferson. 

The Electoral College met December 3, 1800, in the Senate Chamber of the 
present State House, all of its predecessors having met in the Old State House. 
The vote was cast unanimously for John Adams of Massachusetts and Charles 
Cotesworth Pinckney of South Carolina. 

2#04.— In 1804 the Electors were chosen by the people, under a resolve of June 
15, 1804, the entire number upon one ticket. This was the first choice of the 
Electors upon a general ticket. This plan was supposed to have been adopted 
instead of the choice by separate districts, to favor the interests of Mr. Adams, 
but those who proposed the plan were much surprised and disappointed at the 
result. It was a time of great political excitement, and there seems to have been 
considerable independent voting, as the Jefferson ticket was chosen. The result 
would probably have been different if the district system had prevailed. 

The Electoral College was composed as follows: 

James Sullivan of Boston, at large. 

Elbridge Gerry of Marblehead, at large. 

James Bowdoin of Boston, Suffolk District. 

John Hathorne of Salem, Essex South District. 

Thomas Kittredge of Andover, Essex North District. 

James Winthrop of Cambridge, Middlesex District. 

John Whiting of Lancaster. Worcester North District. 

Timothy Newell of Sturbridge, Worcester South District. 

Jonathan Smith, Jr., of West Springfield, Hampshire South District. 

Edward Upham of New Salem. Hampshire North District. 

John Bacon of Stockbridge, Berkshire District.

Charles Turner of Turner, Me., Cumberland District. 
Thomas Fillebrown of Hallowell, Me., Kennebeck District. 

John Farley of Newcastle, Me., Lincoln District. 

The Electoral College met Wednesday, December 5, 1804, and cast its unani- 
mous vote for Thomas Jefferson of Virginia for President and George Clinton of 
New York for Vice-President. Mr. Kittredge of Newburyport was chosen Mes- 
senger to carry the vote to Washington. 

1808.— The choice of Electors in 1808 is one of the most interesting in our 
history. The Jeffersonian ticket, with Gov. Sullivan at its head, had swept the 
State by popular vote in 1804. Both branches of the Legislature were now with 
a Federal majority. At the June session the Legislature neglected to adopt any 
plan for the choice of Electors. Before proroguing the Legislature, Gov. Sulli- 
van sent in a long message urging the adoption of some plan, and stating his 
strong opposition to the choice by the Legislature which the postponement 
evidently contemplated. At the opening of the November session he again 
stated in his message his opposition to a choice by the Legislature, and strongly 
urged an election by the people, but the Legislature decided by a joint order to 
proceed to the choice themselves. This method removed any opportunity for 
the Governor to veto the plan, as it did not go to him for approval. After the 
choice had been made a protest signed by several members was spread upon the 
journals. A memorial was sent to Congress charging informality in the ap- 
pointment, on the ground that the choice had not been laid before the Governor 
and that his certificate did not accompany the return. No action was however 
taken and the matter dropped. The college was composed as follows: 

Caleb Strong of Northampton, at large. 

Francis Dana of Cambridge, at large. 

John Brooks of Medford, Suffolk District. 

Moses Brown of Beverly, Essex South District. 

William Bartlett of Newburyport, Essex North District. 

Ebenezer Bridge of Chelmsford, Middlesex District.

They were chosen Nov. 14, 1808. The College met Tuesday, Dec. 6, and Wed- 
nesday, Dec. 7, its unanimous vote was cast for Charles Cotesworth Pinckney of 
South Carolina for President and Rufus King of New York for Vice-President.

WEATHER BUREAU. 



U. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE— STATE WEATHER SERVICE. 
Office, Post Office Building, Boston. 

As a supplement to the work of the National Weather Bureau nearly all the 
States and Territories now have voluntary weather services, which serve as 
means for collecting and distributing valuable information. The six New Eng- 
land States are all under one management called the New England Weather Ser- 
vice. Its headquarters are at Boston with Mr. J. Warren Smith, Weather Bu- 
reau Director. 

Monthly reports of temperature, precipitation, etc., are collected from about 
90 voluntary observers in this State as per table below. The data are printed in 
the Monthly Weather Review published at Washington. 

Weekly reports on the weather and its effect on the crops and the condition of 
the latter are collected on Mondays during the crop season from some fifty rep- 
resentative sections of the State, summarized, and issued in connection with re- 
ports from the rest of New England in printed form on Tuesdays. Twenty-five 
hundred copies are regularly distributed in Massachusetts through the coopera- 
tion of the State Board of Agriculture. 

Regular forecasts of the weather and special frost, cold wave and storm warn- 
ings are telegraphed to a large number of places in the State at Government 
expense, and any place will be added to this list where action will be taken to 
have signal flags displayed for the benefit of the public. Special distribution of 
these forecasts in agricultural communities is made by telegraphing the message 
to some central point to a person furnished with logotypes and stamping outfit, 
who immediately reproduces the forecasts and sends by mail to all surrounding 
post offices that can be reached before night. The cards give the forecast of the 
probable weather for all the following day. At present Northampton is the only 
distributing centre in this State, the Postmaster there kindly making the distri- 
bution voluntarily. The system will, undoubtedly, soon be extended over the 
entire State.
